I really enjoy the writing of David Rosenfelt, a mystery that makes me laugh is a rare thing.
Any audible book brings out more from the characters that just reading the book, at least that's true for me.
Not that I can recall now. Listened to the book a month ago.
Hello, my name is Teresa and I'm an addict.
I love Andy Carpenter (he is such a dork) and after reading this book, I have the urge to reread (listen) to all the previous ones. David Rosenfelt has scored again. So imaginative the characters pop off the pages.
Don't know what I want to be when I grow up. Trip's cool though. Use Audible to make gym-training sane... And rip my imagination.
I've listened to every one of David Rosenfelt's tales of wise-cracking lawyer Andy Carpenter. His ensemble cast have become friends.His plotting's usually fun AND intriguing. This time though, the intriguing part was a bit, um, flea-bitten. Instead of his usual build... the ending's a tad frenetic... like the last two minutes of an NBA game with an inexplicable court room ending. Well, ok... explained but only with a LOT of doggedness on the part of the reader. I'm hoping that Rosenfelt's not running out of steam, or has perhaps found that his doggie plotting may have skipped its leash or become somewhat lost.
Maybe next time Tara and her fiends may become a LOT more atmosphere and considerably less plot drivers? Once again... I'd recommend as a reader that you begin this series at the start and maybe... maybe... wait for Andy Carpenter's next capade and skip over One Dog Night which may have come very close to going to the dogs.
BTW... we know so much about Andy and his relationship with his Dad. Did he have a Mom? Does he have a Mom? Is there meat on that bone?
Funny, Fresh, Quirky
Any of the other books in the Andy Carpenter series because they are all wonderful!
The scene in the courtroom where Andy saves the dog.
For the love of a dog...
I do not like lawyer books but I LOVE this series. More, please!
CiCi loves mysteries and thrillers
I am a poor critic as I love all of David Rosefelt's books. If you like a good legal mystery and you love dogs, David is your man.
I Love to Read
This is not the best of David Rosenfelt, but as always very enjoyable and hard to put down.
You're always on the edge of your seat with David Rosenfelt's books, and this one is no exception.
The two dogs getting to know each other was priceless.
As always when the murder is finally solved and the right guy is caught.
Andy Carpenter, Rosenfelt's main character is always lovable, always interesting, and you always are left wanting more when the book ends.
right up at the top with all the other
I love the characters and love the way they always come out smelling like a rose!
Grover Gardner is the voice of Andy!
I don't know, did not read print version.
Jon Katz- Dog Days
Yes, and we wer 0on a road trip and it worked out terrific.
This book had the normal Andy Carpenter smart alec tone to it and was totally enjoyable until the Rosenfelt started bringing it together for the end. It really made very little sense with the ending and left me somewhat empty. I love the Andy Carpenter series and was anxious to try it. Unfortunately, blahh...
This one was on the lower scale of Rosenfelt books. The story was entertaining but ended badly.
Grover Gardner is perfect for the wise cracking Andy Carpenter. His voice varaitions for characters is good. I enjoy Gardner's approach to keeping you entertained.
If you are a Rosenfelt fan then yes. It had all the usual twists and turns, I just didn't buy the ending.
I thoroughly enjoy this series. A different hero Carpenter is a defense attorney who doesn't always win, nor does he know how to brawl, seduce woman and has zero cool. The narrator sounds like Larry King and he reads in first person, though Carpenter is relentless when he takes a case he does his cogitating while walking his dog Terra. I like that Rosenfelt leaves lots of familiar characters alive for the next story and has an excellent sense of humor without being completely uncouth. Easy to follow but not predictable. Well worth the money.
